A Women’s Multivitamin Made from Whole Foods, Organic Herbs and Fermented Vitamins
Women have specialized needs, so they deserve a multivitamin and mineral supplement that supports them—in a real food, fermented form. Among other things, my specially formulated Women’s Fermented Multi Offers:
- Nutrients from Real Food and Fermented Herbs
- Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K
- A special Organic Women’s Botanical Blend
- Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin—a highly absorbable, active, natural form of B12—like the B12 in the body.) Vitamin B12 is known as the “memory vitamin,” and is water-soluble, so it needs to be replenished.
- Along with vitamin B12, other B vitamins (vitamin B complex) to support healthy energy levels.†
Why a “Fermented” Multi?
Fermentation is an ancient process used to break down food into more absorbable components. During the fermentation process, microorganisms use aerobic and anaerobic metabolism to convert food compounds into powerful metabolites. Here are some key benefits of fermentation:
- Fermentation pre-digests nutrients and beneficial compounds into more accessible and bioavailable forms.
- During fermentation, key vitamins are increased and even created, particularly B vitamins, as well as other micronutrients that may not have been present in the original food.
- In some instances, fermentation can actually make certain foods more edible and more digestible, such as roots, leaves, nuts, tubers, seeds and grains.
- Fermentation can increase the presence of probiotics in the food.
An important takeaway: Fermentation is believed to help boost the vitamin and mineral content of whatever is being or has been fermented—including multivitamin and mineral supplements.
Here’s a snapshot of some of the vitamins and minerals in my Women’s Fermented Multi, including:

Do You Need a Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement? Most Likely, YES.
Here’s why: Ideally, our diets should provide all the nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, we require daily. For many Americans, however, the diet consumed isn’t nutritionally adequate.
For example, in years past, it’s been determined that approximately two-thirds of the standard U.S. diet is made up of unhealthy fats and refined sugars with low or no nutrient density—providing calories but not the amounts of vitamins and minerals needed, including vitamins A, B Complex, C, D and the minerals calcium, magnesium and zinc. (Oftentimes, women are among those who experience these shortfalls.)
In that scenario, the remaining one-third of the average diet must somehow compensate for what is lacking. The fact is that the rest of the diet is probably not from nutrient-dense food either and cannot possibly fully meet a person’s nutrient needs.
One great way to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet is to include nutrient-dense, real foods. Unlike our standard American diet, nutrient-dense foods can deliver a vitamin and mineral wallop.
As an added step, many people use a daily multivitamin to help support adequate nutrient intake.

Why Is Collagen Important?
Collagen is one of the reasons our bodies don’t fall apart. Collagen literally functions to hold you together.
But what is collagen? Collagen is a protein made up of building blocks called amino acids and is so important that it makes up approximately 30 percent of all the proteins in the body, and different bodily systems and organs need specific proteins serving a variety of functions.
The truth is that collagen is literally everywhere in the body, and when there’s enough collagen in the body, then we can “keep ourselves together” and are humming along.
Why Multi Collagen Protein Powder?
Four different sources of collagen—bovine, chicken, fish and egg—in Multi Collagen Protein Powder feature collagen Type I, II, III, V and X. That’s an amazing matrix of collagen!
Bovine collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in the skin, bones and muscles of cows, featuring Type I and Type III collagen. Type I collagen is among the most abundant collagen found in the human body and forms collagen fibers. It’s present in ligaments, tendons, bones and other areas. Type III collagen frequently works in tandem with Type I collagen and is in bone, cartilage, bone marrow and connective tissue. Collagen Type I and III are the major components of skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes and blood vessels.
Chicken collagen is also known as collagen Type II—a protein found in the cartilage, bones and other tissues of chickens. It’s a highly popular collagen.
Fish collagen is a sustainable source of collagen which generally has increased absorption rates and bioavailability due to the smaller particle size of fish collagen peptides.† Since fish collagen features Type I collagen, the most abundant of the many collagens in the body, it’s a great addition to Multi Collagen Protein.
Then there’s eggshell membrane collagen. Substances similar to Types I and V collagens are found in each of the two layers of the eggshell membrane. Eggshell membrane is helpful in supporting joint health.†
Remember: Multi Collagen Complex Powder features the power of five collagen types—from four food sources!
